Baby Archie Reportedly Looks Just Like Prince Harry, With ‘Reddish Hair’
We haven’t really seen much of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s baby boy, Archie, but, if new insider reports are to be believed, their little one looks just like his dad, red hair and all.
‘His looks are changing every day’
Royal fans got their first glimpse of Archie when the couple announced him to the world during an intimate meet and greet. It was two days after his birth and Archie was snuggled up in a blanket and wearing a hat, so sneaking a glimpse at who the tiny newborn resembled most was difficult.
When asked who he looked most like, Markle shared, “We’re still trying to figure that out,” with Prince Harry adding, “His looks are changing every single day so who knows.”
Archie’s Instagram pics
Archie made an appearance again on the couple’s Instagram account, only it was just his tiny toes in the photo… and on Father’s Day, fans got a peek – or rather, Archie gave a peek from behind his dad’s hand, his tiny hand clutching Harry’s finger. No one could quite make out who he looked like and all were eager to see more photos.
The baby was seen again in photos from his private christening, still with very little hair and not particularly resembling either of his parents.
The last time Archie was seen, Markle was criticized
The next time fans got a glimpse at their baby, Markle was seen holding him at a charity polo match. Little could be seen beyond his bald head, as the duchess cradled him awkwardly. At the time, she was heavily criticized for not properly supporting his head, though parenting experts said she did nothing wrong.
Dr. Jen Trachtenberg, pediatrician and author of Pediatrician in Your Pocket, shared with TODAY Parents: “There is no one right way to hold a baby. You want to make sure the baby is secure and that’s exactly what Meghan was doing. She’s holding him tightly with two arms. He’s not crying and he’s not uncomfortable.”
A discussion ramped up on Twitter about Markle, with many defending the duchess, such as one user who noted: “She was probably trying to shield him from all the paparazzi. She may have just been in the middle of shifting his weight too, when that pose was taken. Whatever, she’s holding just fine.”
Another Markle fan could relate, explaining: “That’s not what I see here. I could be totally wrong, but I see a mother being very protective and almost wrapping him up with as much of her arm as she can. I remember what it feels like.”
Baby Archie has red hair like his dad
It sounds like Archie might have some hair coming in — and it’s red, just like his dad!
A source told PEOPLE: “He’s a happy baby. He has lovely, puffy little legs and tufts of reddish hair. He’s really adorable.”
We can’t wait to snag a look at that red hair!
